ECS 204 electrochemical stage

In situ electrochemical AFM studies

The ECS 204 allows scientists to perform simultaneous AFM imaging and electrochemical measurements (EC-AFM) on electrodes and samples immersed in electrolyte solutions.

Main features

  • Inert liquid cell embedded in solid steel frame
  • Small protected compartment for oxygen-free atmosphere above the solution
  • Integrated micrometer stage for lateral positioning (2 mm range)
  • Employs thin metal wire or true reference electrode (Ø 2 mm × 65 mm)
  • Mounting of flat samples or rod-type electrodes
  • Liquid flow-through for solution filling and exchange
  • Can be mounted on the Nanosurf Isostage for vibration isolation
  • Size: 204 × 204 × 118 mm
  • Weight: approx. 6 kg
